pretty much every brand that made jeans/workwear were of a similar quality , its just that Levis is usually"the" brand we first think of when we think about vintage denim and there are lots of examples online  

Here is an example of a LEE 101b from the early 40's

Love the crazy stitching on those old Lees.
Reading through this thread I'm now hooked on the idea of getting a pair of the S406XXX MIURA-46.
The idea of recreating imperfections, or rather, allowing them to happen by immersing yourself in the technology and culture of the period, seems like the ultimate denim artistry to me.

just took delivery of the Conners Sewing Factory S409xxx-M ww2 


the packaging is really cool and they come with a certificate of authenticity 



i love the back pocket stitching  , quite irregular and wonky 



these shrink from tag size , im usually a 29-30 in most jeans 



better pic of the denim , i would guess it is around 13-14OZ 



iron rivets and doughnut buttons feel really solid 



signed and dated by Mr Yoshiaki Konaka 




really pleased with these

I love all the flaws in those. 
Is there not a bar tack above the hidden rivet on the back pocket?
